Firefox addon ‘HTTPS everywhere’ lets you browse through HTTPS wherever possible

with one comment

HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocal Secured) is a better web protocol to interact with rather than HTTP. What’s the difference you may ask.

Well, in simple words, HTTPS is more secure. Why? Because HTTPS sends all the data you give to your browser, in a secured and an encrypted form – i.e. only servers can read your stuff.

It’s a good practice to opt for HTTPS wherever possible even if one gets that as a compromise to browsing speed. Having said that, it’s not all websites have HTTPS servers and also, it’s difficult to figure out which site has and which doesn’t. And if you do figure out those sites, there might be further glitches in accessing them via HTTPS.

And that’s where Firefox addon HTTPS everywhere comes in place. HTTPS pulls the strings at possible website that could use HTTPS servers and let’s you browse safely. And does all that efficiently.

In today’s unsafe world of web, this Firefox addon’s a must!
